Digg Dying?


I’ve been a long time digg fan and still am but have recently found myself spending more time on Reddit. Reddit is essentially the same site as digg only not as pretty. Users submit links they find online and a community of readers vote on whether the link is interesting or not. A great concept. But in the wrong hands could lead inoccent internet users into the evil greedy grasp of online marketers. In my opinion, Kevin Rose (founder of digg) endangers the purity of user driven content. Plane and simple, the dudes a sell out.

    Use Wikio! It’s the prettiest of them all.

    selling out doesn’t mean a thing.

    It does when it means censoring content to make your sponsors happy.
